Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 17. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Lee's Birthday: eminent men of the United States send sentiments for the day—ministers, soldiers, statesmen and scholars each bring an offering. (search)
The memory of Robert E. Lee. To those who knew thee not no words can paint! And those who knew thee know all words are faint! Moore, Sensibility. O, he sits high in all the people's hearts. Shakspeare, Julius Coesar. such souls leave behind a voice that in the distance far away Wakens the slumbering ages. Taylor, Phil von Arl. O, mortal man! be wary how ye judge! Dante, Vision of Paradise, among the sons of men how few are known who dare be just to merit not their own, Churchill, Ep. To Hogarth. cruel and cold is the judgment of man, cruel as winter and cold as the snow; but by-and-by will the deed and the plan be judged by the motive that lieth below. Bates, by-and-by.

so white and fair Or fell so free of crime. An angel's tongue, an angel's mouth, Not Homer's, could alone for me Hymn well the great Confederate South— Virginia first and Lee. Governor McKinney speaks. Governor McKinney responded to the next sentiment, Virginia— She holds as a sacred trust the ashes of her dead; she feeds with bounteous hand her living sons; she looks with calm hope to a better future. If honor calls, where'er she points the way, the sons of honor follow and obey.—Churchill. The speaker began by saying he had listened with pleasure to Major Stringfellow's oration. Virginia had on every occasion been able to furnish a man to meet the emergency. When in the Union she was looked upon as a leech, and when in the Confederacy she was regarded as the foremost State of the South. Virginia was the first State where free religion obtained. She was for independence when others were uncertain. The climatic conditions conduced to the growth of brave men; It wa<

Smith; the fight took place on both sides of the road and in fields interspersed with clusters of trees. Kirby Smith placed Cleburne's division on the right and Churchill's on the left. The latter, while endeavoring to flank the enemy, became separated from Cleburne, who remained alone, exposed to Manson's fire. The Federals, de their inexperience, gallantly sustained the combat. Cleburne was wounded, and his troops began to waver. But at this moment the Federal right gave way before Churchill. Cruft, who had just arrived with one regiment and two batteries, tried in vain to repair this reverse. Manson was obliged to weaken his left. Preston Smith, ll, who had arrived from West Virginia, was ordered to collect the volunteers furnished by Kentucky, and form them into a division, which, together with those of Churchill and Heth, constituted Kirby Smith's corps. The latter transferred the troops sent to him from Chattanooga to the army of the Mississippi. This army was divided

urrounded by a ditch of seven metres by three, with an armament of twelve guns, which dominated the whole course of the river. The garrison was commanded by General Churchill. This work, called Fort Hindman, was the key to the whole course of the Arkansas. Its reduction was necessary before the occupancy of Little Rock and the c, and dismounted one by one all the guns in the fort. Its defenders could only reply by musketry to the shells which poured upon them from every direction. General Churchill set an example of courage to all, but he had evidently lost the game. The moment for storming the fort had arrived. Firing had ceased on the Federal side; e hundred and twenty-nine killed, eight hundred and thirty wounded, seventeen missing, making in all nine hundred and seventy-seven men hors de combat; those of Churchill were only sixty killed and eighty wounded. The capture of five thousand soldiers, with all their officers and seventeen guns, amply compensated the efforts of Mc

The Society's magazine. With the current number, the twelfth volume of the Register is completed. The aim of the Publication Committee has been to present a magazine distinctively local; to gather from authentic sources items of Medford history that might otherwise be lost; and to preserve them in a worthy and attractive form. That a good degree of success has been attained is evident. The first four volumes bear the imprint of Rockwell & Churchill, Boston; the others show the excellent and careful work of our townsman, J. C. Miller, Jr. The preparation of the illustrations has been mainly the work of Mr. Eddy; though thanks for the use of cuts are due in a few cases to others. During ten years, Messrs. C. H. Loomis, Walter H. Cushing, Will C. Eddy and Miss Helen T. Wild were successively editors. By their able work, a reputable position among kindred publications has been reached. Mr. David H. Brown succeeded Miss Wild, and the issue of January, 1908, was edited by h

On the other hand, remarks the Columbia Guardian, we find in the Army of the Confederate State Davis, Commander-in-Chief, a young man comparatively, and full of energy, vigor and fire; Beauregard, only between 40 and 50, in the full vigor of health; Lee, about 54 or 55; Bragg, active, vigorous and efficient, with others that might be named did we know their precise ages.

July 5th, 1861. General: I have the honor to inform you that, in obedience with your order, I started at 11 o'clock A. M., to-day, with four companies of Col. Churchill's regiment of mounted Arkansas riflemen, and Capt. Carroll's company of Arkansas State troops, to make an attack on some Federal troops at Neosho, Mo., in conjunction with Col. Churchill, commanding six companies of his regiment. We started on different roads, which entered the town, one from the west, the other from the south, with an arrangement to make the march of sixteen miles in four hours, and upon entering the town to make a simultaneous attack. I found that the distance was e necessary for me to have waited near the town an hour, and fearing that information would be carried into town to the enemy, I dismounted the four companies of Churchill's Regiment about a quarter of a mile of the town, and marched them by platoons at double-quick time within two hundred yards of the Court-House, where we found a

ississippi, Texas, and Cherokee half-breeds, but, as all our friends here, even the ladies at the Exchange remark, make no mention of Arkansas. Now, your correspondent well knows, and states on his personal responsibility, that McCulloch's command contained previous to the 21st of July, with the exception of one regiment from Louisiana, (the noble 3d,) Arkansas troops alone, and that he had with him just previous to the march towards Springfield one regiment of well-armed cavalry, under Col. Churchill, in which your correspondent has relatives; one regiment of infantry, well armed and of the best material in the South, under Col. Gratiot; one regiment of infantry, under Col. De Rosey Carroll, besides a regiment of infantry and a regiment and several independent companies of cavalry from the Northwestern part of the State, the names of all of whose commanders your correspondent will not venture to give correctly. It is impossible that McCulloch, notwithstanding the enemy's reports
